My son is 3 1/2 years old. Just recently he has rediscovered his penis. This is an absolutely horrifying experience for me because I just don't know what to do about this. I stay at home with him and this doesn't happen outside of our home, but I have found him poking at it and laughing. I try to keep pants on him during the day to keep a little bit of a barrier but he loves to run around in just his shirt and training pants. I was told I am just supposed to ignore this behavior because it is common and it will pass. I remember my twin nephews going through this stage. But one of them (who is now 8) just stopped grabbing himself day and night! I don't want my son to be 8 years old grabbing at himself in public.
